|OUR CLASS IS NOW FULL|
The purpose of Bible Study is not to gain ready-made answers or to put a lid on the truth. It is, rather, to gain a deeper understanding of the mysteries of God. Such understanding always leads to more questions to ponder. Bible Study is a regular part of our Adult Faith Formation program at St. Thomas More. Through prayer, small group sharing, lectures, and home study we work our way through scripture. Bible Study affords us an opportunity to accept the challenge of St. Paul in his letter to the Romans 12:2 to be "transformed by the renewal of your mind." Information on the current session is listed below.
Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John (by Ascension and Edward Sri)
Sessions take place in the Community Center on Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm on the following dates: August 11th, August 18th, August 25th, September 1st, September 8th, September 15th, September 22nd, September 29th, and October 6th.
Experience the Joy of Following Christ...following Christ takes more than simply believing in him or doing what he asks of us. Jesus wants you to be more than just a believer—he wants you to be his disciple and friend. Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ. As the Good Shepherd, Jesus seeks us. He comes to meet us and beckons us to follow him. He calls us to be his disciples, to trust him, to open ourselves to his merciful love, and to love others as he has loved us. Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. In this study, you will learn what it takes to follow Christ and discover the joy of divine friendship. You will see how God, and only God, can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.
The sessions have a 35-minute video. Everyone needs their own Catechism of the Catholic Church, as well as a Catholic Bible. The Bible Study will be $25.00 per person, which includes a workbook, online video access (for 1 year), and an online workbook. Payment will be taken at the first session. We recommend allowing up to 90 minutes per week for reading and home preparation. We also recommend spreading homework over the whole week so it doesn’t become a chore but rather a habit. However, don’t let a busy schedule discourage you; any time spent studying the Bible is beneficial.
